I’m local to Watford and delighted with the outstanding entertainment opportunities Watford Colosseum afford us. However, I really fail to understand their inability to recognise their market for given events. Ticket sales should indicate the level capacity. The marketing department should be able to predict...More

We went to see Sara Millican last night. The show was very good and the venue easy to get to. However my very real concern was when it came to leave. There were four doors open for those in the stalls to exit but this...More
